I wasn’t able to make it to the gym today. Hell, some days I don’t feel like leaving my house. On those days, I typically follow along to a workout on youtube.
I’m well versed in different workouts and can create my own routine. I just find it more fun to workout with Youtubers or on the app I will let you know about below. It keeps me entertained and motivated.
Today I worked out with Casey from Blogilates on a fitness app in the morning before I had breakfast. I also worked out in the afternoon to Casey on her YouTube. Then, while I was watching Sex and the City ,before writing this post, I did some arms and back workouts with my dumbbells.
I believe in getting workouts in whether it be 7 minutes, 10 minutes, 20 mins, or 45 minutes throughout your day if you stay-at-home. If not, do some calf raises while you’re already standing at work. Practice vacuums ( cinching in your abs like your flexing them * I’ll explain more later on this.) at any time of the day. Find your ways and take away your own excuses.
Ok, rant over. Back to one of the main topics.
My go-to youtubers for work-outs in no particular order:
Blogilates– Pilates Based, I love Casey because she is so bubbly and motivational. She doesn’t just talk about the technicalities of working out but also talks about life.
Tone it Up- Mixture of all types such as Pilates, barre, weightlifting, HIIT, and more. I love their workout variations and video editing. Karina and Katrina are the ones who started Tone it Up, but they now have a team of girls that instruct. They’re all pretty fun.
The Fitness Marshall- I think he is one of my favorites if not my favorite. He is gay, and the stuff he says really has me laughing while I work out. He and his backup dancers dance to all the hip and current songs. It’s kind of like Zumba but each video is just a song long. The choreography is easy and fun.
Whitney Simmons- I love how creative she gets with her workouts. I love her HIIT and weightlifting videos.
Now for apps, I really only have one recommendation.
I’ve signed up for many different ones but you end up having to pay. I saw an ad on Instagram a few days ago for an always free fitness app with celebrity trainers, celebrities like Gabrielle Union, and Youtubers like Casey from Blogilates.
I’ve only been using it for a few days but I love it so far. Everything really is free. No gimmicks.
I highly recommend this app. The layout and usability is so awesome. There are categories for each type of workout you may be looking for. You can also get workouts by body parts. Some workouts are shorter than others. There is a lot of variation and it’s all high quality content that you will absolutely love! It’s called FitOn.
What I ate today:
Breakfast: Strawberry, Cherry & Watermelon Smoothie Bowl
Lunch: Herbed Chicken w/ Marinara over Zoodles
Snack: Warm Honey PB w/ Cinnamon Fuji Apples
Snack 2: Mango w/Lime & Tajin
Dinner: Greekish Salad w/ Gyro Meat
Dessert: Cinnamon Banana Chia Pudding
Sorrrry! I ate it so quickly and hungrily that’s I forgot to take a picture. I made it earlier in the morning so the chi seeds had plenty of time to puff up and get soft. It’s a very healthy and filling snack that you should try. It’s kind of like rice pudding but not rice. I added vanilla almond milk, honey, and cinnamon to 2 tbsp chia seeds. When I was ready to eat, I sliced up a third of a banana to give it some more texture and sweetness. It has been a go-to to curb my sweet tooth.
Well that concludes Day 3’s full day of eating for weightloss. I discussed about wanting to start sharing more nutrition facts. In addition, do you want some of my recipes, like for example, the chia pudding? Let me know in the comments or shoot me an email.
It’s almost 1-pm and I’m dead tired!
I’ll leave you with my calories for the day.
Much ❤️ Love
